Misty Cliffs, Cape Town
The property offers unsurpassed views of the Atlantic ocean with the crashing waves audible in almost every room. The property is west-facing with spectacular sunsets and is sheltered from the South-Easter by the mountains immediately behind Misty Cliffs. Misty Cliffs beach is steps away from the property with Witsand and Scarborough beaches both within walking distance. The area is especially popular with animal and nature lovers, hikers, surfers, windsurfers, kitesurfers and those seeking to get away from it all, some peace and quiet.
The property has two floors; the property is accessed on the top floor, with study, large main bedroom with built-in closets and en-suite bathroom (large shower, large bath with sea views), and a lower floor with two double bedrooms each with built-in closets, a bathroom with bath, shower and toilet, an open plan dining area and lounge with wood-burning fireplace, and kitchen. Air conditioner installed on each level. The property has a backup UPS system installed. ADSL Internet and telephone connected.
The large balcony upstairs and deck downstairs, provide ample choice to sit and/or dine and enjoy the sweeping views. The upstairs balcony offers 180 degrees far sweeping views.
The established and low maintenance garden, which contains extensive indigenous plants including fynbos, also offers various areas to sit and dine depending on the weather and time of day (various levels). Irrigation installed.
You can often see dolphins, seals, whales, penguins, otters and a marvelous collection of birds (sunbirds, sugarbirds, mousebirds) from the balcony and downstairs deck. Baboons are also frequently seen.
The property has off-street parking for two cars, and is closed off from the street with a lockable meranti-clad steel gate and matching fence.
An alarm system with interior sensors and exterior beams, and cell phone and internet connectivity to enable remote access options, is available and newly installed. Misty Cliffs is one of the safest neighbourhoods in South Africa and Cape Town, according to statistics. The property is conveniently located in the centre, rather than the periphery, providing even more safety advantages. Although the area is very popular with holiday makers, many people reside permanently in Misty Cliffs ensuring a community feel all year round.
Locally: Basic groceries are available in Scarborough (small shops 1.7km from Misty Cliffs, beautiful drive and walking distance) and Kommetjie (larger convenience store 7km from Misty Cliffs, beautiful drive via Slangkop). Longbeach Mall (large grocery stores, pharmacies, book and speciality shops 11km from Misty Cliffs) and shops and restaurants at the harbour in beautiful Simon’s Town (14km via Red Hill route, beautiful drive) also offers good options. Houtbay is 30 minutes away via Chapman’s Peak and the Waterfront in Cape Town can be reached in 45 minutes if traffic allows. Cape Point and the famous Boulders Beach (with penguins) are very close by.
This property offers a ‘world away’, peace and quiet, surrounded by exceptional nature and beauty, but is within very close range and easy reach of Cape Town city centre and surrounds.
